ANNETTA SOUTH – An Annetta South teen was arrested early Thursday morning and charged with capital murder after he reportedly called 911 and said that he had killed his mother and younger sister.

In a calm tone of voice, a man identifying himself as 17-year-old Jake Evans described the shooting rampage to the dispatcher during the call made shortly after 12:30 a.m. and said he had been “planning on killing.”

Evans, who was instructed to turn on the porch light and walk out of the house with raised hands, was taken into custody without incident. Responding deputies found a .22-caliber revolver on the kitchen table and the bodies of 48-year-old Jami Evans and 15-year-old Mallory Evans, according to the sheriff’s office.

“What’s the emergency?” the dispatcher asks at the beginning of the 911 call recording.
